Currently looking into this company regarding a backup target for Veeam (can also be configured as file share). This unit doesn't use any RAID configuration. Like a Drobo, hard disks can be of any size and hot swappable (I'm thinking ZFS here).

Any way, just looking to add an extra layer of protection against Crypto and the like. They (the company) claims to be able to retrieve data after an infection from their units.

Has anyone ever used this company's product and if so, what has been your experiences.

We backup (using StorageCraft) to a network share (NFS) not accessible to users.  StorageCraft backups are image based and naturally support roll back from a Crypto attack (I can attest to having recovered multiple times from Crypto attacks). The extra layer of protection we have is cloud backup (also provided by StorageCraft).
I too would be interested in hearing about how Exablox works.  In particular please focus on the Disaster Recovery operations and speed and method of recovery.  By comparison StorageCraft backups are images of the server drives that can be booted (even in the cloud) with recovery measured in minutes (not days or hours).
